group decision-making

What are the advantages and dis***** to group decision-making?

The term '***** think***** is often a negatively applied, a pejorative term used to describe conformist thinking. Thus, one of the primary disadvantages of a group as opposed to a team is that the dynamics of group interaction can stifle individual creativity, stifling the different potential contributions from a potenti*****lly diverse collection of people. The strengths of human diversity and multiplicity are lost when only the opinions of the most vocal and extraverted, are heard. However, one potential group advantage is that a group ***** be greater than the sum of its parts, pooling ***** experiences, impressions, competencies and ideas ***** many people from different backgrounds. No single ***** in *****day's complex and demanding society can do and know everything—if facilitated properly, a group's strengths can be collective stronger the conglomerate individuals that make up the group, and *****come its own entity.

***** is a group?

***** work group is defined *****s collections of ***** who interact and function together in ways that are representative more of their areas ***** collective expertise, than individual merits. People ***** in work groups together much as they ***** in unified departments within an organization.

How does a group differ from a *****?

On a true te*****m the human parts of the group still retain their integrity ***** individuals, but become a part of a whole ***** is l*****rger ***** their individual selves—teams bring specialized skills or knowledge that are vital to larger organizational goals, like a b*****seball team is made up of a good pitcher and a hitter, fielders, etc., with the aim of winning a ch*****mpionship—ra*****r than just lots ***** great hitters.

***** can a group become ***** high-performance *****?

People must feel free to share their unique skills ***** ideas, so they can work *****gether to solve problems and achieve common *****. High-performance teams listen as well as talk, are comfortable with reasonable disagreements, but keep task-foc***** so consensus ultimately occurs and the end of the brainstorming ***** problem-*****lving
